Easter Bunny

Here is a piece I did for easter. It is very inspired by a painting of one of my favorite illustrators ever, J.C. Leyendecker (top image).
My initial sketch looked more like a deer with rabbit ears (middle image), so I tried again and came up with the design you see here (bottom image). I was going to add more texture to the fur, but once I started to put down the strokes...I realized that would take me more time than I wanted to spend on this particular piece, and decided to save that for another illustration.

Leyendecker is one of my heroes too. Unbelievable detail, yet so fluid and loose.

Oh, nice bunnies, as well!
